As we all know, China is the last country in the world to end the system of silver standard currency. Silver coins, the mechanism that other countries in the world have already withdrawn from the field of currency circulation, have converged into the circulation of old China in Qing Dynasty and Republic of China with the development of international trade in old China. Due to the long-term and large-scale action of the people's Bank of China to collect and exchange silver dollars, the actual stock of old private silver dollars is becoming less and less, and eventually become a rare cultural relics collection over time. Among the nearly 1000 kinds of old silver coins issued in China, there is a very unique pattern and a large seal character "Han" in the center, which is the exquisite "one yuan silver coin made by the military government in Sichuan". This well preserved and excellent "one yuan silver coin of Sichuan made by the military government".
This coin is a Sichuan silver coin made by the military government in the first year of the Republic of China. It was made by Chengdu mint of the military government of Sichuan Province in the first year of the Republic of China (1912). After the founding of the Republic of China, the Dragon mold was abolished and the model was created by the military government of Sichuan Province. In the central pearl circle on the front is engraved with four words of "Sichuan silver coin", and in the middle of the four words is engraved with a beautiful hibiscus flower, which symbolizes the four words of "made by the military government" on the outside of Chengdu Pearl circle in Chengdu, the lower end is engraved with the currency value of "one circle", the left and right sides are engraved with a four petal flower star, and in the central circle on the back of the silver coin is engraved with a seal character of "Han", which represents the meaning of "Great Han" of the new government, with anti Qing meaning Righteousness. It is decorated with horizontal shading, surrounded by 18 small circles and engraved with vertical decorative patterns, symbolizing the 18 provinces responding to the 1911 Revolution. "The first year of the Republic of China" is engraved on the top of the circle, and its silver character has four paintings with gold side series. This model is the finalization of Sichuan silver dollar, which has never changed. " With the changes of national policies and times, the amount of its existence has gradually decreased, and now it is hard to find.
In May 1911, the Qing government, under the guise of nationalization of railway, transferred the right of private construction of roads in Sichuan and Guangdong to the four banking groups of Britain, France, Germany and the United States, which aroused people's opposition all over the country. The response of Sichuan Province was particularly strong, with hundreds of thousands of people participating in the road protection gay army. After the Wuchang Uprising, the provinces successively declared their independence, and the road guards surrounded Chengdu. Zhao Erfeng could not control the situation in Sichuan, so he had to give power to Pu Dianjun, the leader of Sichuan Road Protection Movement and other constitutionalists. As a result, Sichuan Province also declared its independence, established the "Han Sichuan military government" and took over the Chengdu mint. In order to expand military supplies, the silver coins with the character of "Han" were issued.
After several years of brewing in the money market, the currency trading market dominated by mechanism currency is quietly warming up. Silver coins are a large category of coin collection. Different versions of silver coins have their own unique charm, which is worth the careful taste of investors.
